Texas Health School strives to provide quality educational programs that prepare its graduates for employment and future advancement in their specialized field of allied health.

Texas Health School’s Vocational Nursing Program exists to provide quality nursing education to its diverse student population. With an emphasis on practicing competent, safe, and responsible nursing care, our LVN program’s primary goal is the development of practical nurses who have a strong theoretical base, competent clinical skills, and sound clinical judgment.
The program emphasizes hands-on training necessary for skill competence, a structured decision-making model based on rationale for quality patient care, and self-evaluation in the promotion of professional development.
The Mission of the proposed Texas Health School (THS) LVN-to-ADN Program builds upon the Mission of the THS Vocational Nursing Program currently in operation and is as follows:
The mission of the Texas Health School’s LVN-to-ADN Program is to provide quality education to a diverse student population necessary to contribute to the nursing profession through development of competent, safe, and empathetic novice RNs. The curriculum of the LVN-to-ADN Program will expand students’ competence as LVNs by emphasizing knowledge, skills, and aptitudes necessary to make appropriate clinical judgments consistent with the RN scope of practice in a variety of clinical settings. Graduates will be committed to life-long learning, using reflection and self-evaluation to continue their professional development.
